Our test bed has recently changed; we now use the X48T-DQ6 which has a second PCI Express x16 slot running off the Northbridge. This helps give PCI-E controller cards as much bandwidth as they can handle.
We have pit the Areca card against the Promise SuperTrack STEX8650 card, since both support SATA and have 256MB onboard cache. However, this won't make much difference as it only works in RAID 6 mode.
